Recognizing that each mouth is as unique as an encrypted snowflake, the oral-health experts at Rivercrest Family Dental and Sonrisa Dental design their treatment plans accordingly. A duo of skilled dentists leads the way: Dr. Justin Barber—who served as a dentist in the US Air Force and helms Sonrisa as well as seeing patients at Rivercrest Family Dental—and Dr. William T. Lee Jr., who lavishes chompers with an expertise that comes from four decades of experience. The pair of dental experts treats gnashers of all ages and stripes, catering to mouths with everything from basic exams and cleanings to root canals. They also practice cosmetic dentistry, handling veneers and offering whitening treatments for patients seeking smiles bright enough to forgo helmet lights when spelunking.

In cosmetology school, MieleDolce founder Luis Iturralde let his fellow students wax him for a class demonstration. His allergic reaction to the chemical wax made it a demonstration of more than proper waxing technique; his brief modeling gig also showed the importance of beauty treatments that avoid irritating skin. Iturralde carried this lesson to his spa, MieleDolce, where the staff sidestep chemical waxes in favor of threading or electrolysis.

Casas Dental Care tends to the teeth inside children and adults alike. Dentists perform routine checkups and teach kids the proper way to brush and floss teeth. Any issues with decay or disease are swiftly fixed with fillings, root canals, and even extractions.

The Perfect Touch aims to magnify beauty and boost guests' confidence with a wide range of aesthetic treatments.

Paraffin-therapy treatments are available as an add-on to help soothe dry skin and promote better circulation in the fingers and toes.
